PE and Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
For 2020-21 Yardley Primary School received £19,990 for our PE and Sport premium grant.
The amount was spent in full to contribute to covering the costs of the part-time specialist sports coach (who works 3 and half days a week), and football, netball and dance coaches who teach the after-school clubs.
The school offers 8 after school sports activities, fully funded by the school, with no cost to parents. Normally, pupils from Years 1 to 6 have the opportunity to attend at least one club a week but spaces are slightly limited currently due to clubs having to be only one year group so pupils remain in their bubbles.
Our high commitment to and participation in inter school sports competitions can be evidenced in most years by the results our teams and individuals achieve. Currently no inter school competitions can take place but here is a selection of results from the previous academic years
The school has been very successful in inter-sport competitions within Waltham Forest over the 2018-19 academic year. Results have included;
KS1 cross country - Individual and team silver medals
KS2 cross country - Boy team won bronze medals
Yr2 Tri Golf - Winners!
Sportshall Athletics - Yr2, Mixed Yrs 3/4 and Mixed Yrs 5/6 all won their competitions (the 5/6 team represented Waltham Forest at the London Youth Games)

Orion Harriers Cross Country - Individual boy bronze medal and girls' team won silver medals
Swimming Gala - number of individual prizes
Quad Kids athletics - Yr2 - 3rd, Yr3 - Winners, Yr4 - 7th, Yr5 - 2nd and Yr6 - 3rd. The combined Yr5/6 team won the overall prize and represented Waltham Forest in the London Youth Games finishing 6th out of all the London boroughs with one pupil winning the individual bronze medal in the girls' event.
Yr2 Gymnastics - team silver medals
KS2 Gymnastics - team silver medals
Swimming takes place for pupils from February half term in Year 5 up until February half term in Year 6.
Teams also competed in a number of other activities and events over the year including boys and girls' football, sitting volleyball and tennis. We were awarded the School Games silver award as result of our participation in inter-school competitions, our in-school events and our older pupils' work as sports leaders to support the development of others.
Sustainability is provided by class teachers co-teaching with a specialist sports coach during the lesson time to improve their own teaching of gymnastics, athletics, dance and a range of sports. The PE timetable is rotated termly so that all children receive access to being taught by the specialist coach throughout the year.
